Household chores like cleaning and laundry may not be fun but the least we can do is perform these essential tasks using recycled products that don’t harm the environment. Many everyday items are made from virgin materials when, in most cases, it is completely unnecessary. Recycled products do the job just as well, if not better, than counterparts made from ‘new’, helping to save energy, reduce landfill and preserve resources.
One such example of a company at the forefront of sustainable innovation is EcoForce – a range of everyday, practical and affordable household cleaning products made from recycled materials including: EcoForce Recycled Clothes Peg, Peg Basket and Clothes Line for eco-friendly laundry drying, EcoForce Recycled Sponges, Scourers, Dusters and Cloths for ‘green’ cleaning and EcoForce Recycled Food Bag Grips for storing left overs.
All products are designed and manufactured in the UK from high quality recycled waste and are not just 10%, 20% or 30% recycled but at least 90% made from recycled materials!
EcoForce Recycled clothes pegs are made from a revolutionary moulding process and an award-winning design using a single piece of recycled plastic making them more energy efficient to produce, strong, safe and durable. There are no springs to fly off and cause injury, no metal parts to rust and stain clothes nor will they fall apart in your hands! EcoForce pegs are so strong they can grip even in the windiest of weather and are almost impossible to break! They are frost-proof, UV stable and highly durable. Use with the EcoForce peg basket and EcoForce clothes line for the eco-friendly way to dry clothes this spring. You’ll save money on your energy bill and have a ‘clean’ conscious!
EcoForce’s scourers are also made from recycled PET. They come in heavy duty or non-scratch and are contoured for easy grip. EcoForce sponge scourers come from 100% recycled foam and each pack contains one sponge with a heavy duty scourer and one with a non-scratch scourer. EcoForce multi-purpose, super-absorbent cloths and dusters are made from high quality recycled waste materials.
A material like plastic has a short lifespan but can be recycled many times over thus reducing the need to use precious oil to make new plastic. We dutifully put out our recycling for kerbside collections but have you ever wondered what happens to the 15million plastic bottles we use every day? It’s a simple process – bottles are taken to a recovery facility where they are separated from other waste, cleaned, sorted by plastic type and colour then shredded, melted and moulded into plastic pellets which are purchased by companies to make ‘new’ products. EcoForce is a good example of how recycled plastic can be returned to the market in the form of a ‘new’ product which, in turn, can also be recycled.
Daniel Neumann of EcoForce explains: “We live in a world of finite resources and this is not going to change. Making recycled plastic uses 70% less energy than making virgin plastic, helps reduces landfill and preserves resources. It makes plain common sense to use recycled products for everyday tasks, especially if these products really work – as the EcoForce range does – and are priced the same as competitive products. EcoForce is committed to bringing affordable, usable recycled items to the general public and is determined to help you run a greener home without it costing the earth.”
EcoForce is widely available throughout major supermarkets, B & Q, Homebase, Oxfam, Dunelm Mill or Ocado on line. So when you’re spring cleaning your home this year make sure you go green!
